“Allergic reactions can result in minor to severe symptoms.”
Allergies occur when our bodies have a negative response to certain substances such as food, medicines, animals, pollen or even skin care etc.
The body immune system is built to help counteract alien substances that are harmful to the body. However, allergies occur when the immune system mistakes a harmless product (allergens) as being harmful to the system, thus, producing antibodies to help protect the body which leads to allergic reactions. Reactions can range from minor to severe with symptoms such as Running nose, Sneezing, Coughing, Hives, Nausea, Indigestion, Headaches and in severe cases, Asthma and Anaphylaxis.
“Avoidance of allergens is the primary treatment for Allergies.”
Common food allergens include Nuts, Fish, Milk, Egg, Wheat, Sesame, Soy and Corn etc. Diagnosing food allergies may be a bit difficult as symptoms vary from person to person and an individual may experience different symptoms at different times. It is always advised not to self-diagnose but to see a food allergist for proper diagnosis. However, one of the primary treatment of allergies usually involves avoidance of allergens.
